One Night Only!

The dust is just starting to settle from the 2009 Vans Warped Tour. The two month long traveling punk-rock circus called it a summer this past Sunday in San Diego, California. The culmination of the tour has once again marked the end of summer and outdoor music festivals in general, leaving many of us crawling back to the dimly lit club scene to catch a show.

This scenario has played out every year for the past 15 years, except this year the fun doesn't end just quite yet. In honor of Warped's unexpected longevity the tour's founder, Kevin Lyman, is bringing us a one night only event that will cap off a decade and a half of well spent, punk infused summers.

On September 17 the Vans Warped Tour 15th Anniversary Celebration will take place across the country. Movie theaters in over 400 cities will broadcast a two hour compilation of exclusive Warped footage for fans. The documentary will include performances from bands like Bad Religion, NOFX, blink-182, Underoath, Rise Against, The All-American Rejects, 3OH!3 and more.


Tickets are already on sale through NCM Fathom Events. There are only a handful of theaters in the Northeast doing this, so you might be driving a little way to catch this one. Check out the full list of participating theaters here.

I'd like to urge all of you to go check this out, and pick up tickets as soon as possible. I'll be missing it due to my graduate school obligations. Yes, I know... Lame. But seriously, if you've got a free night, GO!

Whether you've been to Warped Tour or not, you know the validity and influence that this tour has on our whole scene. That should be reason enough to hit this up. So grab your popcorn and soda, and don't forget to fill me in on what I missed.
